I was born in 1950. I was the third daughter of Faye and Henry. Shortly after my birth, they purchased their first black and white television.
Things have really changed a lot in my lifetime. As a little girl, I remember picking up the telephone, and hearing my neighbor’s conversation. It was called a party line. You shared your phone line with your neighbors. A milkman delivered the milk every day. You turned on the radio, and television with a knob.
I fully expected to grow up, get married, and raise a family. I did do all of those things. My husband is a wonderful man, and my grown-up children, (2 girls and 1 boy, + one terrific son-in-law) are the icing on the cake.
I also picked up a few degrees in education, and worked in the schools. I also tried other areas, like drug and alcohol rehab, and helping people with disabilities obtain employment.
After I retired, I started writing. I really enjoy it. You can presently read some of my articles in a little newspaper, call The New Standard, http://www.thenewstandardonline.com. I’ve also written in a magazine and the local newspaper.
I have gotten to interview local musicians, authors, and other people who are well-known in the Columbus community. It’s been so much fun. It’s something I love to do. I think it’s important to follow your passion.
Blogging seems to be a lot of fun too. I am a novice, and there is so much I don’t know! I appreciate any advice experienced bloggers can give me!
I am really trying to keep up with technology, but it isn’t the easiest thing. I am fascinated with blogging, and I like the idea that other people will read my writing and even comment on it. It’s an ego thing I guess. It’s a new way to connect with others.
